His desire to leave had developed over the summer, but as recently as last weekend, when he featured in the game against Villareal, he thought he was staying at Atletico.
In the end, everything had happened very quickly, and he revealed that with just minutes to go in the transfer window, contracts and documents were still being checked.
Saul thrn admitted he had stagnated as he dropped down the pecking order at the Wanda Metropolitano, and he was now looking to flourish with a fresh start in a new environment.
At Chelsea, he should have the perfect opportunity to remind everyone how good he is.
